Jacqueline Chapman

Postdoctoral Fellow

Jacqueline is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Public Policy and Administration. Jacqueline conducted her PhD research in the Department of Biology at Carleton University in the Fish Ecology and Conservation Physiology Laboratory. Her research addresses anthropogenic stressors and how these may impact fish health; her MSc addressed the influence of watershed land-used on stream diversity and fish parasite communities and her PhD thesis investigated molecular indicators of salmon health and microbial infectious agents to determine factors associated with post-release behaviour and survival in salmonids across Canada. Jacqueline is passionate about promoting transdisciplinary research and meaningful collaborations to solve complex conservation issues.

Jacqueline has been working in SPPA since November 2016 with Dr. Stephan Schott. Their research is conducted in collaboration with Inuit communities in Nunavut, focusing on sustainable inshore artisanal fishery development in the Canadian Arctic, as well as the socioeconomic and environmental factors associated with subsistence wildlife harvest. Jacqueline joined the faculty as a postdoctoral fellow as part of the Genome Canada funded Large Scale Applied Research Project “FISHES: Fostering Indigenous Small-scale fisheries for Health, Economy, and food Security”.
